KENT COUNTY, Mich. — Jamarion Lawhorn, the youngest killer to be convicted in Kent County, is now free, according to his re-entry team.

It was determined that Lawhorn will no longer be under watch during a hearing on Thursday.

Lawhorn was 12 years old when he stabbed and killed 9-year-old Connor Verkerke on a Kentwood playground back in 2014. It was a decision he made while reportedly suffering from physical abuse.

Lawhorn was released from Evart Youth Academy back in March and placed under the care and supervision of a family in a private home.

Attorneys consider Lawhorn’s rehabilitation a success.

We’re told Lawhorn is now working and desires to become a public speaker in the future.
